4 Reasons Why Journaling Will Help You Reach Your Goals
It’s not a secret — if you want to reach your goals, journaling about them will help you reach them! You’ve probably heard that advice plenty of times before, but that’s because it works! Here are 4 reasons why journaling down your goals will help you out in the long run.
1. JOURNALS KEEP YOU ORGANIZED
When you use your journal as a goal planner, you can see where you’re spending your time and prepare for the days, weeks, and months ahead. Having a visual of what you need to do and when you need to do it will keep you on track so you can procrastinate less and accomplish more!
2. JOURNALS HELP YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR “HOW” AND “WHY”
When you write down what you’ve done each day, you’re forced to start thinking about why these are the goals you’re choosing, what will make it easier to reach them and what kind of actions will and won’t work towards the success of reaching your goal!
3. JOURNALS HELP YOU SEE YOUR PROGRESS
Progress is a critical component of growth and improvement for everyone. You didn’t become the person you are now just overnight. A journal helps you see and keep track of the things that are truly important to you so you can watch your progress happening little by little, making you more likely to stick to them in the long run!
4. JOURNALS HELP YOU REFLECT DAILY AND CONNECT WITH YOURSELF
By journal writing about what you believe in, why you believe it, how you feel, and what your goals are, you better understand your relationships to those things. This is because you must sort through the mental clutter and provide details on why you do what you do and feel what you feel. It also helps give you some introspection to reflect on who you were that day. Self-awareness is very important when it comes to sticking to your goals!
